Filming in Seychelles

The Seychelles in the western Indian Ocean want to secure more Bollywood film shoots with the launch of a new direct flight route to Mumbai. Flights by Air Seychelles will leave Mumbai for the archipelago four times a week.

Strong access links are a good way to boost production by making it easier for producers and talent to physically get to a filming location. In 2014, Abu Dhabi made a similar move by launching a direct flight route to Los Angeles, in a bid to attract more Hollywood producers.

The Seychelles are perfect for those looking for small romantic hotels and a relaxed atmosphere for their productions.

The sea and underwater worlds are a huge draw for filmmakers as well as the famous granite stones, exotic beaches and jetties. There are also ultra-modern private houses which are often available for shoots.

Overall, filmmakers can enjoy a wonderfully safe and friendly shooting environment.

As a popular gateway to India, we have optimised our schedule to offer seamless two-way connections from Mumbai to cities such as Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad, simplifying the travel options for both inbound and outbound passengers.

The Seychelles have a tropical climate and all but the southern tip lies outside the cyclone belt. It has a fairly constant temperature all year ranging from 24C to 32C. The monsoon rains fall between November and April, with the calm north-west trade winds, when it is hotter and humid. It is cooler and dryer between May and October when the trade winds blow from the south-east.
